Inherit a controls content and properties from one form to another

I am looking for a way to inherit a listboxes list items and item data from another form's listbox without looping through to copy when the new form is loaded.  For instance, I have a list on Form1 with three items and corresponding itemdata values. I load Form2 which has a listbox. I want this listbox to inherit the items from the list on Form1 without copying each item in code.

Is this possible and if so do you have any sample code illustrating it.

note: there was no solution, but there is API code to make the looping faster.

that link still loops through each item (albeit through api) which is the same as what is in the link i posted...

i'm thinking there is probably a way to do it using copymemory, but i'm not holding my breath.
